Economic Development

Strong economic growth starts with sustainable infrastructure and workforce development. Investment in human capital and quality-of-life improvements lay the foundation for long-term impact.

Arkansas ranks #48 in the Country

According to this article published in June 2017, USNews.com ranks Arkansas among the lowest in the United States in categories such as Health Care, Opportunity, Infrastructure, and Education.

Sadly, this is not a new phenomenon for Arkansas. Failure to embrace social change, resistance to innovation, and poor recognition of governing shortfalls have all contributed to Arkansas remaining  at the bottom of the pile. It's time to change our brand.

With abundant natural resources and that fierce independent streak that runs through the veins of every Arkansan, we have the potential to lead the nation in sustainability, economic growth, and quality-of-life advancements. However, we cannot meet that potential if we continue to send the same folks with the same tired ideas to the state legislature. We need to take a hard look in the mirror, and start having real conversations about how we compare to other states. Failure to do so keeps us from being competitive in classrooms and boardrooms alike. It's time for some new voices to represent our state.
